Birthdays

John's and my birthdays are 6 days (8 years) apart. He turned 44, and I turned 36. For John's birthday, we had dinner at Ho Ping House. He got a complimentary cheesecake slice!


For my birthday, we enjoyed Teppanyaki at Hana Yori with friends, Shelley, Angie, and Tracy. I love, love, love their egg yolk sauce, although I hate to think how fatty it is. I also got a complimentary pineapple dessert!


Can hardly believe how old I am now, eek, lol.

New Year's

There was a severe weather warning with lake effect over New Year's, so John, Sirius, and I had a quiet celebration at home. ☺ We got over a foot of snow that weekend! Nice to get downtime after traveling.

My resolution was to avoid the 7 deadly sins - anger, envy, gluttony, greed, lust, pride, sloth, after watching a show on the History channel. However, I'm discovering this is actually hard to execute in its entirety! Thus, I'm sort of trying in varying degrees, hehe.

Christmas

I know I'm behind on blogging. It's just easier to post on Twitter and Facebook sometimes. I had a wonderful Christmas with my beautiful family in the DC area. We attended the candlelight service at church on Christmas Eve, a family tradition. We missed my little sister Cay, who was unable to visit this time.


We also road tripped to Atlantic City and stayed at the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Hotel. I broke even for the most part. I love roulette, real or digital, hehe!


When we got back, I met up with my friends, Carine, Faz, and Doyle, for karaoke and drinks.


I enjoyed being back on the east coast, even for a short while!
